The islands of Seychelles are known for many things – gorgeous beaches, verdant hills, tropical forests, and even water sports. But the nightlife in Seychelles isn’t something that the country can boast of. Result? As the sun goes down, tourists crawl back to their respective hotels or try to settle for some relatively calm evenings.

There aren’t many discos, casinos, strip-clubs, or pubs on the streets of Seychelles. Whatever little we know of the Seychelles nightlife, is centered around Mahé and Praslin. And the mainstream hotels and resorts manage to present a modestly vibrant environment with their in-house discotheques, bars, and casinos. A lone movie theatre and some stand-alone gaming houses & pubs further contribute in providing the tourists with experiences of the nightlife in Seychelles.

Nightlife in Mahé Seychelles

But in case you are planning to book a Seychelles tour package, this Seychelles nightlife guide will help you find entertainment from dusk to dawn.

1. Dance all night long at the nightclubs in Mahé

Katiolo is often said to be one of the best places to enjoy the Seychelles nightlife; thanks to its tropical feeling. The guests can sit outside at the only open-air nightclub in the country, enjoying the fresh ocean-breeze and the lively music. And the music itself is diverse and amazing; covering a wide range of genres – 70s, 80s up to recent hits, R’n’B, local tracks, and Rock’n Roll. Moreover, out of all the nightclubs in Seychelles, it is only here that you can get hot snacks like french fries, fried chicken, and burgers.


Note: Customers are not allowed to come in shorts or flip-flops. Furthermore, patrons under 18 years of age are not allowed.

Other nightclubs in Mahé: Lovenut (Victoria), Ozone (East Coast Road), Barrel (Revolution Avenue, Victoria), and Tequila Boom Nightclub (Beau Belle, Victoria)
